Introvert moms need the energizing and restorative benefits of fitness more than anyone, but it can be hard to find in group classes and gym memberships. Here are some of the BEST workouts for introvert moms.

Working out has amazing physical and emotional benefits – and I can’t think of anyone who needs that more than us introvert moms.

Eventually I found some of the best workouts for introvert moms – workouts that energize and restore, without draining my emotional reserves.

I know I’m not the only one who has faced these challenges, so I wanted to share some of my favorites with you today. Here are 9 of the BEST workouts out there for introvert moms:

The Best Kind of ‘Me Time’

Is there anything better than the mental space and time to think you find during a good walk or run? Out in nature is best, but even a long go on a treadmill or stationary bike can give you energizing and restoring me time. If you’re stuck in the gym, wearing headphones is a great way to drown out the noise and create the illusion of alone time. Here are some of the best solo workouts you can do almost anywhere:

  • Walking
  • Running
  • Cycling
  • Swimming Laps

Strength for the Day

Strength training is something I shied away from – partially because at the gym it’s more social and not as relaxing. I eventually bought some weights and started strength training at home. Here are some of my favorite strength training workouts for introvert moms:

Mommastrong

This incredibly affordable set of workouts is absolutely amazing. It’s one of the most empowering workout experiences I’ve ever had, and very effective for the time spent. Workouts range from beginner to advanced, and all can be done in the comfort of your own home (or wherever there’s wifi).  And at $2/month to stream,  you cannot beat the price. So awesome.

I also love using our Amazon Prime subscription to stream workout videos. There are a ton out there, but this strength training video is one of the best.

Fit2B Workouts

Fit2B workouts is another great option for introvert moms. This affordable subscription offers a variety of workouts for every fitness level, including cardio, strength training and yoga. Their yoga/relaxation videos are my favorite. Not able to stream online? They also have a few workout DVD’s on Amazon.

I also love adding in gentle yoga routines for days when I need to relax and restore, or just to mix things up. When I can’t make it to the YMCA for a class, I break out my tablet and yoga mat and do use a video at home. Here are a few I’ve tried and enjoyed:

 

The Best Workout Really Is The One You Love

At the end of the day, the best workouts for you are the ones that you actually enjoy. Finding fitness options that you love will make all the difference, because when you love it you’ll actually do it – introvert or not.
